Internet wagering software developer Sheriff Gaming's parent company has been cleared of wrongdoing in a money laundering case that Dutch authorities had previously investigated the firm for.
Speaking to the InfoPowa news agency last week Sheriff Gaming's Ellen Flapper addressed the issue, saying: "On basis of the information provided to the lawyers as appointed by Bubble Group BV, (which inter alia consists of written communication with the public prosecution department), I can confirm that Bubble Group B.V. is not designated as a suspect in this investigation."
"Since no other formal information is provided by the public prosecution department, Bubble Group decided not to send out a press release in the media."
The betting firm had been the subject of the investigation, which was tied into a crime ring that committed drug trafficking, money laundering and illegal gambling. The investigation resulted in seven online gambling sites being shut down with bank accounts being frozen.
The casinos shuttered in the investigation include: AmsterdamsCasino, AmsterdamsPoker, JackpotRed, TripleGold, Golden10Casino, Tanzoo and FruitLuck.
